Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • Kingdaltron Dalton (@Kingdaltron) reported

    3-2-1 isn't going to fix your community overwatch. If anything make it worse.

  • Hotpinkkt Kat (@Hotpinkkt) reported

    **** Overwatch servers. Soooo tired of getting kicked off during the middle of a comp game. It's not even my connection issues too, but yet I still get penalized for it. **** this game.

  • WarhammerGeek Kit Kinney 🌈 (@WarhammerGeek) reported

    @thegillman777 @GailSimone I saw a normal single issue once in a clearance bin. I know though they used to give out variant issues in their rewards program. The most comics I ever saw in store were the Overwatch ones that came with a keychain figure.

  • EvenBIGGERjonNo Jonno (@EvenBIGGERjonNo) reported

    There’s a lot of problems with Overwatch but a few of the core problems can be boiled down to a few things: namely the sheer amount of CC in the game. In a match earlier I was stunned, frozen, stunned again, slept, shattered (stunned), then Mei ulted (frozen). How is that fun

  • braydenborrell Instrumental Protest Song (@braydenborrell) reported

    If you smurf in overwatch you should be permanently banned. It is a problem that is almost in every game I play at this point. If you are coming from console that is one thing but it makes the game less fun for everyone. It is ruining the experience for a ton of people.

  • Whimsipoofs Whimsipoof (@Whimsipoofs) reported

    I've been having way more fun with Overwatch this past month more than I have in the past 1.5 years... but holy shit, this game still has huge a CC problem.

  • ruby_ebook faker ruby (@ruby_ebook) reported

    fix overwatch mmr loss 2k17

  • lazy_liam Liam 利亚姆 (@lazy_liam) reported

    @BlizzardCS getting HF errors when entering an overwatch game on PS4, playing in mainland China.

  • MeekTheDon14 Akeem 🗣🤷🏽‍♂️ (@MeekTheDon14) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent please fix your Overwatch servers. I got kicked out of 5 straight competitive matches. I’m gonna be highly upset if I get banned

  • nutellamolotov hindsight memes are 2020 (@nutellamolotov) reported

    @ingdamnit the last time i saw any comic books in any gamestop it was the overwatch issues that were paired with a toy

  • hikariotakuhime 🎊 mikko mikko mii 🎉 2020 RAT YEAR (@hikariotakuhime) reported

    I was fine playing overwatch because I lag so much in that game it’s not straining my eyes as much as something like Minecraft

  • T0MMATHAN Tommathan (@T0MMATHAN) reported

    @FRAGS_OW 2-2-2 doesnt have enough problems to warrant moving to 3-2-1, and balancing around queue times is the worst idea ever thought in the history of Overwatch

  • BlizzardCS Blizzard CS - The Americas (@BlizzardCS) reported

    [#Overwatch] We're currently investigating an issue affecting our authentication servers, which may result in failed or slow login attempts or issues joining/connecting to matches.

  • iamanob1 slas jo (@iamanob1) reported

    @BlizzardCS dc'ing from comp matches in overwatch, says unexpected server error occured, when i go back into the game i cant rejoin it and i get into a new game and can still see the chat from the game i dc'd from and i lost sr as i presume they lost :(

  • nickk_8 Nick. (@nickk_8) reported

    Yeah, login severs are down na east @PlayOverwatch #Overwatch

  • Soulhealer95 Shiv (@Soulhealer95) reported

    @BlizzardCSEU_EN Are they're server issues again on overwatch I just got kicked from the server during a match and now it wont let me join any game but it would still show me chat. :O

  • snapmatique super dot sonic @ CRUNCH TIME (@snapmatique) reported

    @BlizzardCS I keep getting disconnected on #Overwatch with the Unexpected Server Error message. This occurred on three occasions in under 1 hour today and all 3 cases happened within the first min of the game.

  • jejebob77 Jens Johansson (@jejebob77) reported

    @Ramseygirlstyle @maddow fix - the Mueller report, the dems getting the house to execute overwatch, impeachment... now it’s the election - what makes anyone think the result will be respected when the results of every other effort was just ignored. It’s time to prove the ppl deserves it’s liberties. /2

  • SadWhaleFamily Lucas. +4 to hit. 1d12+4 cold damage (@SadWhaleFamily) reported

    @BlizzardCS just got disconnected from Overwatch (PC) in the middle of a game with an UNEXPECTED SERVER ERROR. I can't reconnect. Thought I'd report to let you know

  • yakueli elizabeth (@yakueli) reported

    is anyone else having server issues with overwatch i just got bumped out of a game and now i cant login :(

  • _Initial_H TheHrvojeKingHR (@_Initial_H) reported

    @BlizzardCSEU_EN Now im getting DC from overwatch for no reason server error

  • RachelUndercovr Rachel Undercover (@RachelUndercovr) reported

    @BlizzardCSEU_EN Are they're server issues again on overwatch I just got kicked from the server during a match and now it wont let me join any game

  • zamuel50 Sam (@zamuel50) reported

    @FateSteelTaylor hahah no problem! I just don't often come across people who are fans of Overwatch, even less with Overwatch League. I don't often talk about it because all my followers are anime fans. So I found it neat when I recognized someone :)

  • hoodie_mel hoodiemel (@hoodie_mel) reported

    @andersonmaddyy @TorrentFury @YourOverwatchYT @HNPDeathBlow I feel like content releases temporarily inflate numbers rather than really keeping people around. I don't have the numbers (so correct me if I'm wrong), but the issue with overwatch might just be that it's too flawed to be as big as we might want it to be.

  • Cocoa_Seed Eli (@Cocoa_Seed) reported

    @BakedShouffle stupid ***** from vast error dismas mercy from overwatch

  • Desiluted 🐾 Lois 🐾 (@Desiluted) reported

    Overwatch needs to fix there game every game I have had today there has been a hacker in

  • btramstweets bartosz trams (@btramstweets) reported

    @calebdmorse @D_Franco22 @tribros @Notre_Mets_ i dont know, i feel like the bubble will burst this year or next, besides, all the major games have their problems overwatch is a total shitshow cs is "too violent" for ESPN and mobas are very hard to explain to an average viewer

  • unxpenedwindxws savannah-raine (@unxpenedwindxws) reported

    hi overwatch please fix your game. i tried playing comp with my friend but i couldn't play because it was applying an update that didnt need to be applied and when i had to leave it gave me a ban, same thing happened with when i loaded in to total mayhem. im very annoyed

  • OvertakesMisfit Freelance GOAT Brig main (@OvertakesMisfit) reported

    @YourOverwatchYT @HNPDeathBlow Also think some of the issue is that they don't like Overwatch is because it's harder than they want it to be outside of high mechanical skill. Positioning, map strategy, abilities, and all of the other nuances are annoying to people that just want to click heads.

  • johnnycap126 Johnny (@johnnycap126) reported

    @CSGO a while back someone recommended a coin or medal for doing overwatch cases. What if you did it like the service medals. A certain amount of overwatch cases needed to first obtain the medal then it upgrades like the service medal.

  • NekrosUmbra NekrusOmbra coming 2069 (@NekrosUmbra) reported

    @Sven85890820 @Dariusandausti1 @mp3_red @PlayApex The triple A nature of Overwatches dev team is why it got the problems fixed The surprisingly not triple A nature of Apex’ dev team is why it has taken So long, not to mention the servers are EA’s not Respawns

  • daggial Daggial (@daggial) reported

    I have an idea to fix queue times in Overwatch btw: remove role queue. done. ez.

  • JokerHarley2 Jordan Holley (@JokerHarley2) reported

    Well since the pole had a three-way tie be live streaming WWE,then OverWatch then I guess crash team racing

  • GTElephant Crash Translation (@GTElephant) reported

    That said Winston needs an armour adjustment, then he’d probably be fine. He’s not terrible now, he’s just got far less room for error than Reinhardt. #Overwatch

  • lastGen_Gamer Max (@lastGen_Gamer) reported

    @DeputyRust apprently they sold overwatch comics as single issue plus backpack hangers. they never did here in europe but they must have sold so bad they exported quite a few here last year

  • _King_Joffrey King Joffrey (@_King_Joffrey) reported

    @BlizzardCS i have submitted numerous tickets, I've looked at the blizzard forums, i have scoured every YouTube video and article, but my laptop continues to crash every time I load Overwatch with the "Your rendering device has been lost. Application Closing!" error. Please help.

  • barasxl ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (@barasxl) reported

    i had this problem in overwatch and ill this problem till i die i guess

  • dollydeparted Emily Rose 🥀 (@dollydeparted) reported

    i keep getting latency issues in overwatch but ONLY in overwatch. my internet for other online games has been perfectly fine, perfectly fine for streaming, perfectly fine for browsing the internet, etc. so i have no idea what ******** is going on or how to fix it. im so annoyed.

  • MinisterBrian2 Minister Brian (@MinisterBrian2) reported

    DON’T BUY #NordicTrackCRAP has terrible equipment and customer service. THEN Instead of trying to help you they just block you on Twitter!@NordicTrackUK @NordicTrackOpen @NordicTrackFR @NordicTrackIT @nordictrack_rus @nordictrack #Overwatch #SidharthShukla

  • Kephrii Brian St. Pierre (@Kephrii) reported

    My schedules all sorts of jacked up. I'm working out atm that's why I'm not live. Overwatch still has the graphics issue so I probably wouldn't have wanted to stream anyway. Good news is they're looking into it! I'll wakeup early and just stream the entire day tomorrow. ♡

  • D_Alli08 D Alli (@D_Alli08) reported

    @PlayOverwatch you need to fix matchmaking before anything else it is terrible. My team has been steamrolled every game for the past 15 games, balancing heroes shouldn't be a priority balancing teams should be! #PS4 #overwatch

  • MattGleave Matt Gleave (@MattGleave) reported

    @Huntrixq @CaptAnaugi @MrClemps Oh god yeah no I agree. Overwatch is a narrative DISASTER. I was talking about WoW. The problems with each games' narrative are totally different.

  • MockaSpiros DrSpyr0 (@MockaSpiros) reported

    Anyone who has Overwatch please delete that game. It is horrible. community is still so bad and people don't even bother at this point to fix the game but just wait for OW 2. Embarrassing as a gamer i am disappointed. Get it out of my computer.

  • dinoyoko Teshii✨ (@dinoyoko) reported

    Oh thank god im not the only one dealing with the "Error" on Overwatch @Blizzard_Ent @PlayOverwatch

  • dam_nowak Chipped Skylark (@dam_nowak) reported

    @BlizzardCS Overwatch games are being found but never it’s never joining them. I get a message, “Error starting game, trying again” each time.

  • tomymqz TomiMQZ 🔥🐸 (@tomymqz) reported

    @BlizzardCS I'm trying to join into a match in Overwatch on PS4 but every match that I try to join it says "Error starting game, trying again". It already found 4 matches and no one loaded.

  • nekoboIo 산드라 (@nekoboIo) reported

    @BlizzardCS Help i can't get into any games on overwatch (PS4), it just says error starting game, trying again but I try that to no avail :(

  • Tht1ShadowWolf That1ShadowWolf (@Tht1ShadowWolf) reported

    Was gonna play something other than Overwatch tonight, BUT I have a problem. I'll be live around 7 pm cst with some solo q.

  • flovverbomb 𝐒𝐚𝐫𝐚𝐡🐰 (@flovverbomb) reported

    Since the new ow update I keep having errors and I'm so tired of it, and now the error just kicked me out right before a ranked game starts - I get suspended for 10 mins from ranked and I lose 50sr thanks thanks overwatch

  • zeitouny00 Ahmad_Zeitouny00 (@zeitouny00) reported

    @BlizzardCS Hello plz plz blizzard iam abig fan for overwatch but i can't playit when i start to login an error massage says bc-101 how i can solve this problem my location is syria

  • evakownsme Beata (@evakownsme) reported

    @chiraIium there are mods that will make the game run faster and make the game cause as less errors as possible - nrass overwatch and nrass errortrap, and they do work really good

  • elitez_88 Mike (@elitez_88) reported

    @RumblebeeGG @haloofthoughts To save their game and Overwatch 2 then it's definitely worth it. Majority of their players want that FPS feel again. Can't really go a 1 support player system as there be problems with that as well. I'm thankful that they're at least trying to fix the problems

  • kevindaydreame1 Ferris Wheel (@kevindaydreame1) reported

    @PlagueOfGripes Battleborn had the opposite problem! Was hilarious how the player based dwindled, rather liked how it felt to play but was hilarious. Wish I knew all the reasons it failed cause it can't just be from the overwatch loot box machine

  • amerikaOnFIRE amerika* 🇺🇸 (@amerikaOnFIRE) reported

    @YourOverwatchYT Yes. Love it. Feels like old Overwatch but without the risk of your tank or both healers tilting and swapping to DPS. Only issue I've ran into is people learning to MT with the OT's and it not working. But that won't be as bad in real competition.

  • wavejaeger_ King Cotton (@wavejaeger_) reported

    Overwatch. Except rather than not fixing problems, the devs just do the wrong things and actively make the game worse with every update

  • Bro_3434 Bro3434 (@Bro_3434) reported

    1-3-2 is a interesting new idea but because brig a character it does nothing but remind me of how broken and abusive she can be. Zarya just uses her as a small rein with self heal. #Overwatchleague #overwatch

  • blehrivera cumrag (@blehrivera) reported

    @minimum @korieindahouse Please just go back to unloading boxes from a truck with your broken down scion. We don’t care about your horrible stats on overwatch. You’re a healer bby that’s sad
